John "The Syrup" Bercow has been elected to the chair of Mr.Speaker in the House of Commons to much applause.
Unfortunately & somewhat ironically all the applause seems to be coming from the Labour benches?
Bercow or Mr.Speaker as he likes to be known has already started making changes including a ladder to climb aboard the chair & promoting Michael Fabricant MP for Mid Staffordshire - but mainly Lichfield to the lofty post of Chief Wig Bearer to the Crown.
Bercow gushed loudly about his first appointment & told our reporter that "Michael is a natural for the post & has a head almost uncannily suited to the placing of Wigs"!
Fabricant who was originally a stuntman in the 1980's children's series "Worzel Gummidge" is said to be delighted with his promotion and "relishing the challenge" of Bearing The Official Wig of State.
